All-Star game and Mickey Mouses all around!

Wednesday when I went to Jury Duty in Downtown LA, I noticed that there is this Pittsburg Pirate Mickey Mouse at Union Station.     I had seen one at Anaheim Stadium when I went there for the All-Star FanFest interview.    I did not have my camera that day but Friday I made sure I had it with me.  

After googleing about the the Mickey Mouse, I read that there are 36 varieties of statues including designs for all 30 clubs to celebrate the All-Star game here in Anaheim.  I learned that there are three in the Los Angeles. 

After work I made my rounds.  First Union Station:

After taking a few pictures at Union Station, I walked to the Music Center in Dowtown.  The walk is uphill.  I should have taken a bus but it was worth it to see the DODGER Mickey Mouse !

In back of that fountain there was a huge group of people dancing with an instructor on stage teaching Indian (from India) dancing.  Yep!  I joined in!  

Here is another picture of the Dodger Mickey Mouse

OK, so after doing some dancing (or trying to follow the instructor with the dance moves), I headed to the third Mickey Mouse that is in LA.  

ESPN LA Live has the Yankee Mickey Mouse

The LA Live is next to the Staple Center, home of the 2010 World Champion Lakers!   A few blocks away from there is the Convention Center where they are having the Anime convention.   I’ve never seen so many costumes!  I took a picture with this guy

It was sad to read that the Red Sox Mickey Mouse that was somewhere in Anaheim, was vandalized.  His arm is being repaired.   

I’ll try to go take pictures of the ones that are in Hollywood sometime this weekend.  They have Royals, Reds, Indians, Mariners and Phillies.   I have pictures of the the Pirate and Yankee Mickey Mouses also if anyone likes me to post them, let me know.     

Contratulations to Gibby on his first win as a manager.  Now Dodgers go take the next two!

Let’s Go Dodgers!

Thank you all that read my blog and comment!  I made #17!  Woohoo!   When I think of #17, I think of Carl Erskine!    I admire Oisk!  That is why a few years back I purchased a baseball with his signature at Dodger Stadium.    On the baseball he wrote the date of his no-hitters.

Love the Yankee Mickey, of course. But it’s cool that so many teams have their own model in celebration of the All Star game. Thanks for the pics.

Jane,
I knew you would love the Yankee Mickey, just like I LOVE the Dodger one! :-). They are all beautiful done.

Babytoes!
The Phillies one is at Hollywood and Highland Center!

There are at least two of them at Disneyland and Downtown Disney-The Marlins is in front of ESPN Zone and the Braves in the plaza outside the main entrance to the Magic Kingdom. I have pictures of both. Let me know where the Phillies’ one is.
Walgreen is selling little replicas of the statues, but the only ones our local one had were Angels, Dodgers, Yankees, Red Sox, and one of the All Star ones.

Emma,
With the Red Sox having so many injuries right now, maybe a crazed So Cal fan thought it needed an injury too.
I found picture of the Rays Mickey Mouse today, and I love how MLB put some small details on there that mostly home fans would recognize.
Love the guy in the retro anime blue suit and ears. Maybe that will be Mickey in the year 2520?

haha Cliff. RedSox Mickey got the injury bug.

I was leaving when I saw that guy was passing by. He just fitted with the mickie, ha?

ooh Mickey Mouse! Reminds me of Disneyland which is right next to the Big A!

Ahh i have yet to go to LA live! I’ve been in the staples center and the nokia theatre and only saw a glimpse of it. That’s really nice and an exciting place to go to for some fun :)

p.s. Congrats to Eithier for his all star selection :D

Mimi,
Was LA Live there when you went to the Staple Center and the Nokia threatre. Nokia is where I saw the Wooden/Vin Scully event and the Koufax/Torre event.

That is a whole lot of Mickey Mouse…lol Very cute. And the dude with the big blue head is hysterical!

Hi Emma,

Emma!…You are ALL that is Dodger Baseball! Good Job!
Where exactly is the Dodger Mickey? I have a meeting in that area Wednesday and would love to get a pic.

Go Blue!

Hey Emma! I’m finally back, and this was one of the first posts I checked out as soon as I got back into my blog. I loved the Mickey Mouse pictures and it’s so cool that you’re in Anaheim for the All-Star game. Wish I was there! It’s too bad that the Red Sox Mickey Mouse got damaged. I guess we’ll have to add him to the DL with so many of our other players. ;)

Great post!

Hey Jenn,
Isn’t funny that as I was leaving I ran into that guy with the blue head!.

Peter,
Other than Disneyland and Angel Stadium are in Anaheim, nothing. But the people that design the baseball mickey mouses did a great job. I’ll try to post the Phillie since that one is in Hollywood on another time.
.
Thanks Michael. Hopefully Red Sox Mickey gets off the DL before the festivities start.
.
Thanks Adrian! I see the Padres Mickey is at the South Coast Plaza.
.
Rob,
I sent you email where it is. It is between the Music Center and the Dorothy Chandler Pav. I took more pictures tonight after the game. I was so close and I like the new pictures with the water fall lid up and the rest of the lighting there. I think our Dodger Mickey looks ADORABLE!
.
Fenway Bleacher,
Thanks! Glad that you are back! I’ll be at the Anaheim Convension on Wednesday for the orientation. I’ll try to find out when Red Sox Mickey will make his comeback!
